Tire Care Tips
Your tires connect you and your vehicle to the road. Accelerating, braking, turning, various terrains, and road hazards can all take their toll on your tires. To ensure yours are always in good shape, it’s important to stay on top of your car’s factory-scheduled tire maintenance. One of the most common regular services for tires is rotation. Over time, tires wear down in different locations based on where they sit on the axles of your vehicle. If not rotated, this uneven wearing can put a strain on your driving, resulting in poor fuel economy and traction. Tire balancing is another service. When the tire doesn’t sit in the wheel well right, you will experience wobbling, hopping up/down, and vibration, reducing tire life. Maintaining proper air pressure is pertinent to the performance of your tires. If a tire is over or under-inflated, you risk decreased traction and handling and increased chances of a blowout. Wheel alignment also contributes to the quality and wear rate of tires. U.S. Automotive in Springfield, Missouri, specializes in all forms of servicing for tires.
